    Adams Lanford spent time as a student assistant coach in 2007 with SFA and helped lead the Ladyjacks to a share of their fourth consecutive Southland Conference title and a 27-8 overall record.

    During her playing days she was part of three Southland Conference championship squads and was named to the Southland Conference All-Tournament Team in 2006, helping take the Ladyjacks to the NCAA Tournament. As the setter, she helped lead SFA to an upset of Alabama for the school's first-ever NCAA Tournament win with a 3-2 victory.
